for a strong, fast pick-me-up
If you feel stressed you should try the “leaky tyre” technique.
A friend of mine is an experienced singing teacher who has helped many star performers.
I always remember this breathing technique he showed me.
To be honest, I used to think he looked and sounded silly doing it – but now I can see the benefits and I use it myself – not with breathing for singing but breathing to help clients handle workplace stress and anxiety.
I call it the “leaky tyre” technique because when you exhale – you exhale through the mouth and make a noise like a tyre with a slow leak.
Often we are too embarrassed about making “silly noises” – but try it yourself and “feel” the stress escape like air out of leaking tyre.
Breathe in through the nose for the count of 3 – down deep so you feel your stomach…
